Self trash-talk

Do not speak to yourself in a hurtful and demeaning way by saying things like ” I am so stupid” or ” I am an idiot.”  When you talk to yourself in this manner it is destructive to your self esteem and may cause you to experience dissatisfaction, fear, or anxiety in life and your performance. The more unhappy you become with your performances the more you fear performing which can result in anxiety related to performing any task. Learn to be patient with yourself and to know that it is okay to make a mistake and when you do so tell yourself ” It is okay, I’ll do better next time.” Learn to speak to yourself with compassion.
